Paris: Bastille Day!

I’m feeling a little Frenchy since my trip to Paris a few weeks ago.  The Francophile in me is definitely re-surging!  I have loads to tell you about my time in the City of Lights and what better way to kick off my Paris story than to wish my newly adopted countrymen and women Bonne Bastille!  July 14th is Bastille Day in France. Bastille Day commemorates the storming of the Bastille fortress-prision on July 14, 1789 when the French overthrew the monarchy and created their own democracy.   Festivities are held on the Champs-Élysées (which I think must be one of the best streets to shop on in the world!) in Paris.  So stay tuned  . . .

P.S. - Oh, and by the way, it’s official, I am a macaron junkie.
